Still humid, but fall-like weather on the way

Posted: Updated:

Good Tuesday.  Let's get through a few more hot, humid days, then we can enjoy some cooler and drier air this weekend.

For the rest of the week, a strong ridge of high pressure will do 2 things for us.  First, it will give us a southeast flow of air that will keep bringing in warm moist air from the Atlantic.  Second, the high will cap the atmosphere which means all the moisture will stay trapped at the surface keeping the rain and most of the clouds away, but also making it very muggy outside.

This pattern will get disrupted Thursday as a front begins to work it's way in.  That front could bring a few isolated showers Thursday into Friday, but the main impact will be much cooler and drier air settling in late Friday and through the weekend.

For Saturday and Sunday, highs will be in the low 80s.  Dew point values will drop from about 70 into the mid 50s, indicating MUCH drier air in place.  Lows will be around 60 Saturday morning, and in the mid 50s Sunday morning.

    (WRCB) - Good Saturday. While we have seen a few light sprinkles this morning, the bulk of the rain stayed east and south of the area, and I think that will continue to be the case. For the rest of the day we can expect mostly cloudy skies with a high today of 74. We will see our winds increasing behind the front to 10-20 mph from the northeast.Tonight, the winds die down, and we will see some clearing heading through the overnight.More

    Parts of the area remain under Frost Advisories and Freeze Warnings. I don't think we are looking at any widespread problems this morning, but patchy areas of frost are certainly possible, especially in the Blue Ridge.More
